Luxury camps in Okavango Delta in Africa can offer you relaxation from a busy day. You can enjoy nature and the different species of animals and birds and at the same time relax and enjoy the luxury of the hotels.
Splash Camp is situated in the heart of the Okavango Delta, within the Private Kwara Reserve. This brand new camp will offer a very relaxed, friendly and authentic atmosphere. The area has long been known as Splash due to the huge water crossings that had to be negotiated to access the camp area. The Kwara Reserve shares a 30km water boundary with the famous Moremi Game Reserve and its unique location boasts both permanent water and seasonal flood plains as well as extensive dry bush wilderness. Favoured by labyrinths of permanent water channels and secret islands this area offers the perfect delta experience and is considered to be amongst the best in Botswana for game viewing and activities.
Kwando Lagoon Camp is perched on the banks of the wild Kwando River, nestled beneath towering ebony and marula trees. The heavily forested site is home to a wide variety of birds and mammals, while elephants and hippos are normally visible from the camp. The stunning views and close proximity of wildlife all contribute to the pervading sense of calm at Lagoon. Lagoon’s area in the Kwando Reserve has a well-earned reputation for big game and large herds of elephants and buffalo, especially in the winter months, when herds of up to a thousand are not uncommon. This vast concentration of games attracts the attention of large predators. The Lagoon wild dog pack regularly den close to the camp and the excellent viewing opportunities have led to Lagoon’s reputation as the place to see wild dogs in Botswana. Seasonally large herds of elephants drink at the river bank near to the camp in full view of the main deck, while playful spotted-necked otters are commonly seen performing in the water.
Lebala means ‘wide open spaces’, and the camp is located in the Kwando Reserve’s 232,000 hectares of private unfenced wilderness. Here, the southerly flowing Kwando River disappears into the vast marshland to the east, outside of the Kwando Reserve. Lebala sits on the floodplains of the Kwando River and the special ecosystem is home to a wide variety of Africa’s plains game such as zebra, wildebeest, impala, giraffe, and tsessebe. The wonderful variety of wildlife also includes elephants, hippo, buffalo and the ever-present predators of lions, cheetah and hyena. Lebala’s location away from the dense mopane woodland to the east of the Reserve facilitates the ease of traversing the concession looking for a big game. Meaning ‘wide-open plains’ in Tswana, the camp is located near vast plains and wooded savannah, and offers regular sightings of predators, elephant, lion, wild dog, leopard and cheetah as well as wildebeest and waterbuck. Explore this wilderness on game drives and seasonal walks with your trained and knowledgeable guide. Other activities include fishing and boating excursions.
